Ellen Anthony Reflects On Work as Volunteer
FANWOOD – Ellen Anthony, a volunteer for CONTACT We Care, the telephone hotline and crisis intervention service, began her work with the organization nearly 16 years ago.
“It keeps you alive,” she said about all her volunteer work. “Maybe it’s the way I was raised,” said Ms. Anthony. “I feel if you are involved, you should give 100 percent.”
The 47-year resident of Westfield who now lives in Basking Ridge has been an active member of The Presbyterian Church of Westfield. She learned about volunteering at CONTACT We Care through the church.
CONTACT trains volunteers to actively listen to callers in need. Callers may be dealing with daily stress or traumas such as suicide or a loved one’s death.
“The training teaches you how to listen not just to the words someone
says, but the meaning. Volunteering for CONTACT is about interacting with people, that’s why I like
it. There are so many people who are lonely and hurting. They need someone to talk to,” she said.
Ms. Anthony also served as a board member of the 24-year old non-profit organization, and now assists in maintaining the statistics on calls coming into the agency.
“I believe in what CONTACT does, and I think c o m m i t m e n t comes from involvement and participation. The more you do, the more committed you become.”
For information on becoming a CONTACT We Care volunteer, please call (908) 889-4140. The next volunteer training will be held Wednesday evenings, September 22 through December 8 from 7 to 10 p.m. at The First Baptist Church in Westfield.
